Introduction and Project Overview
Hi everyone, my name is Can Erduman. I'm a freelance character artist and animator living in Mayence, Germany. My latest work include tutoring, TV commercials, documentations, and much more. In this course, we're going to create a flexible, easy-to-use eyes rig. Some of the key takeaways from watching this course include learning how to rig cartoony eyes using Espresso, the BodyPaint to Photoshop workflow, animation principles on how to animate eyes, and finally a quick 101 on unwrapping and texturing in Photoshop and BodyPaint. By the end of the training, you will know how to create an eye rig to use over and over with multiple characters. I'm excited to work with Digital-Tutors and share these techniques with you, so let's get started with the first lesson.
